My name is Mary Jo Leone-Fithen also known as Coach MJ at Barnard. This is my 7th year at Barnard and I am truly grateful to be teaching in the beach community I grew up in. Yes, I am a MBHS Buccaneer! Before teaching physical education, I was a 6th grade classroom teacher and health educator for the district. I live in Ocean Beach with my husband, Chris, and two boys, Nicolas (16) and Christopher (14). I enjoy bodysurfing and swimming in the ocean, rollerblading at Mission Bay and practicing Iyengar yoga. I am excited every day to instill health and fitness into the lives of the students at Barnard.
